Hahha, a hoax all right, a really lame one at that.
Like anyone is just going to give away millions of dollars to some radmomley chosen e-mail address, jezzz, they spam that message to the whole list.

All you "won" was more spam and the chance to be a real idiot if you fell for it ;-}

Don't you love these sweepstakes that we keep winning even though we never entered them?

Odds are, you would have been aske to send in something like a "processing fee" of several hundred dollars to claim your prize. That's how most of thoase sweepstakes drawing scams work.

hehehe, ya, and how they know what name to put on the check with the "Congratuations Winner" personalized greeting!

Well, the old adage "A fool and his money are soon parted" may need to be updated for the digital age to
"A fool and his money are instantly parted on the Internet".



"You want to send me the big pile of money I won..."

"but you need a small pile of my money to send it?"

A) "Here you go!"
B) "Take the fees out of my big winnings pile before you send it."

Apparantly enough people pick A) to make it worthwhile for the scammers to try.

It's a very bad scam, especially since the word "fiduciary" is spelled as "fuduciary".

  Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you do criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes. - i am 2KR*P*Grinder! Go to Top of Page
